Ronald Joseph Kule, an American author and poet published internationally, writes non-fiction biography, sales training, sports and travel books; and young adult, narrative text and sci-fi fiction; and haiku poetry. He began writing at the age of six. Working with his father, his first editor-in-chief, he developed a succinct style, which readers claim is both imaginative and easy to visualize. Asked about it, he says, "I had to get to my point quickly, factually or not. Crammed into a small house with seven educated brothers and sisters, two parents and, most times, at least one dog, I learned to be the best liar in the bunch. Turns out, that's a pretty good skill for a writer."
Kule pursued a successful 48-year sales and sales-training career internationally and wrote two books as a result: "Sell Better, Sell Easier, Sell Anything Artfully" and "Vendere Meglio, piu e facilmente, con Maestria," which are the bases for conducted sales-training workshops. He also completed hundreds of speaking engagements in 17 of 35 countries he visited.
Kule's long-anticipated biography of the late Friedmann Paul Erhardt, "CHEF TELL: America's Pioneer TV Showman Chef," forewords by REGIS PHILBIN, "the hardest-working man on TV" and four-time Emmy-winner CHEF WALTER STAIB of Philadelphia.
Kule's short story, "ThunderCloud and the Old Man," was published in Better World Stories by Artists for a Better World in 2008. His published poetry credits include Bamboo Souls (2005) and Spirit of Humanity (2008) published by Artists for a Better World International; The Little Book of Cleveland Street Poetry, Volume II (2009) by Artists In Action International.

David Miller, the ebook edition of "Carolina Baseball: Pressure Makes Diamonds," foreword by three-time NCAA Coach of the Year, Ray Tanner. http://PressureMakesDiamondsebook.com
